Round 34 Summary

In Round 33's summary, I said that round took forever but this one really took forever! I enjoyed it (crashing issues and pink flashing aside) but I am glad to say goodbye to it as well. Here's a rundown of what went on.

Births: 4 (Alex MorettiCole HamiltonWren Novak and Oscar and Stella Lachance)

Deaths: 1 (Hanna Novak)

Engagements: 3 (Jack and Audrey BentonAmar Hamilton and Adrienne NovakEdward Lachance and Lucy Gray)

Marriages: 2 (Malcolm and Hope NovakJack and Audrey Benton)

Break-ups: 0

Graduations: 4 Anthony and Veronica Moretti, Noah Gottlieb, Adelaide Sitko

New residents: 0

Total population: 146 (72 males and 74 females)

Babies: 4
Toddlers: 7
Children: 24
Teens: 13
Adults: 76
Elders: 22

I've put new residents as zero but that can't be right. The population count was 139 last round but I've gone up by 7, with only 4 babies and 1 death. So apparently, 4 people entered the hood, somehow? I have no idea who they were, so I haven't listed them. Just noting that I am aware of the discrepancy!

Lot tour: Steve and Olivia's house

I haven't been doing a lot tour for all of my new houses but seeing I actually built this one, I thought it was definitely warranted!

The next family in the play schedule is the Nihill household, so obviously, they needed a house. I had them living in a lovely downloaded one with all the bedrooms on the basement level. When I moved them in, I thought that wouldn't annoy me but it only took about 30 seconds trying to decorate it for me to realise that it was going to drive me insane! Then I actually went insane and decided to build a house, which I very rarely do.

So here it is.

As is customary when I build houses, the rooms are all way too big. ;) But better too big than too small. Maybe?
